Morgenochtend, 2008. Olieverf op linnen, 130x90 cm -

My First Solo shows a large number of paintings with the most recent work by Smits van Burgst as a shining centrepiece.

MAMA and Niels Smits van Burgst are giving you the opportunity to be immortalized on canvas. Under the motto Paint My Picture! MAMA invites everyone to submit his or her holiday snaps. Smits van Burgst will create a new piece from one of these snapshots. This painting will be unveiled during a spectacular closing party on the opening day of the festival De Wereld van Witte de With on 12 September.

The opening will take place on July the 25th at 7 p.m.
